After announcing last week that the remaining members of As I Lay Dying would no longer be using the band’s name, but rather would form a new group named Wovenwar, they also confirmed that their first single would be making its debut soon. The band not only features Jordan Mancino, Nick Hipa, Phil Sgrosso and Josh Gilbert, but also Oh, Sleeper’s Shane Blay on vocals.
Like it has been stated, the band’s debut song has officially been released after revealing the news to eager and intrigued fans. The song, “All Rise” will be featured on the group’s self-titled debut which will be released sometime this Summer through Metal Blade Records.
The announcement and the song’s debut comes almost three weeks after a long posted was uploaded to As I Lay Dying’s website that gave fans hope that the band would continue under their original moniker. As it was revealed a few hours after the original post, Mancino, Hipa, Sgrosso and Gilbert released a statement reassuring fans that they were not the ones to post the state, but rather it was former frontman, and current jail-bird, Tim Lambesis.
Wovenwar aren’t letting the past affect their future; they already have a few tour dates under the new band name.
